An excerpt from the record Years, created by Bartholomäus Traubeck, which features seven recordings from different Austrian trees including Oak, Maple, Walnut, and Beech. Here is an Ash tree’s year ring data. Every tree produces a unique sound due to varying characteristics of the rings, their strength, thickness and rate of growth. The tree rings are translated into the language of music, this is not a case of there simply being music in a tree as it were. Traubeck uses a PlayStation Eye Camera with a stepper motor attached to its control arm. It relays data and pattern to a computer with a program called Ableton Live which allows what has been recorded to become heard. The resulting incredible piano track is magical, and in the case of the Ash, a eerie and rhythmic.

Science at its best. I know it can often feel that science is an alien entity separate to the everyday world. A thing you were forced to study and never felt apart of. In fact the exact opposite is true, it is everywhere and everything. After school I stayed in the science field and it is truly amazing what our world is capable of and what can be learned and shared. This is a really exciting project that proves science isn’t just theorems and lab coats but real and incredibly, beautifully beneficial. I hope this research continues, it could really make a huge difference to many lives.

I don’t particularly want to comment on this photo. I have shown it to a few people and of course have my own opinion. I gathered a very mixed review, some of the feeling that a creature of this size is too dangerous to allow to live, others believing it is not our place to interfere and feel such violence unnecessary. This photo was taken in Australia. I know no more, I post it because I think it is a powerful image and one that will mean different things to different people yet one that most definitely has impact and so I feel validates being shared.

Have you heard of an animal called a Quagga?? NO?? That might be because they are extinct. This striking creature, native to South Africa. The last wild quagga died out in 1878 and the last captive died in Amsterdam in 1883 ending the species. It is a subspecies of the plains zebra, only one quagga was ever photographed alive and a mere 23 skins are preserved today. Have a look at the only picture of a live quagga taken in 1870

Today is World Down Syndrome Day 2014, I believe in raising awareness of this condition and challenging the negative and derisive attitude that is sometimes directed towards people with Down Syndrome. Instead we should be helping enable those living with the condition to live fulfilled and happy lives. It’s essential these individuals are given the exact same rights and opportunities as everyone else and they are also given the respect they deserve as people to live without ridicule, social stigma and ignorant abuse for who they are. Everyone is beautiful.

Just a thought……

(This by no means an area I am well versed in.)
Professor Andrei Linde, one of the main authors of the ‘inflationary universe theory’ received news that evidence had been recorded confirming his theory. Professor Chao-Lin Kuo surprises him with the news of the break through which gave merit to his belief in a theory and a life dedicated to theoretical work. He has spent over 30 years exploring and developing the Big Bang Theory. Professor Kuo and his colleagues recorded “the first images of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time, the “first tremors of the Big Bang.” The emotion at this news is magical to watch, I honestly don’t understand the specific science involved but I got goosebumps at the intense surge of emotion clearly overcoming Professor Linde as he hears confirmation that his life’s work was just validated and proven. How beautiful to see Professor Linde celebrate the obviously invaluable reward for a life spent in labor and dedication to his work. An incredibly precious moment for this man. What a lovely video.

With the current escalation in poaching of rhinos in South Africa, very soon death rates will exceed birth rates making this species closer than it has ever been to extinction.

In 1936 ‘Benjamin’ the last known Tasmanian Tiger died resulting in the extinction of this animal.
'benjamin' last know tasmanian tiger died 1936 species extinct

Some animals become extinct naturally as evolution breeds out some species and reinvents others. Poaching however is not a natural part of our eco system, it is violent, cruel and is causing the disappearance of many animals unnecessarily. There are many animals currently endangered and in need of protection and help in protecting vital habitats.

We truly live in an amazing world filled with epic expanses, tumultuous histories, vivid cultures and so many places I long to see and touch and experience for myself. Right now I live through pictures but my dreams are colourful.

If there is a moment or person just weighing on you right now, here is a little something……

I have to admit this makes me both extremely sad and profoundly impressed. Please don’t be wasteful, appreciate how blessed we are. There is undoubtedly so much more ingenuity and creativity shown by the people in this chip and also true pride in there creations than is ever genuinely shown in my orbit. I ask, please don’t be complacent. Be appreciative, be grateful and also help. It pretty clear the issue here and also it reminds me how such topics are of late not being discussed as frequently or as passionately as needed. I am sad seeing how my fellow people live and thinking how much waste happens around me, how much I have and how guilty I may be of taking all the luxuries and conveniences I have for granted. These are children, children who need music ‘my life would be worthless without music’. When given an instrument these children shine. They are beautiful and inspirational and are excelling out of gratitude for the gift of music and an instrument to create it with. I am humbled and ashamed. Please watch.

‘My heart….it feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me anymore. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it i’d wish for nothing in exchange- no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing that you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.’
Yvaine, Stardust

Lets not take life too seriously, have a moment of pure silliness as often as possible. Live life with a free and happy spirit.

I am in love with this beautiful piece of poetry and the message within. Take a listen its worth it.

Feeling small doesn’t make you small, it makes you appreciate how big the world is and how much is out there to discover.

Its interesting to me how people can be so behind the times they live in and chose to ignore moral evolution.
